Abstract

We calculate the leading order corrections to the [overline B]-->Xsgamma decay in the standard model with two large flat universal extra dimensions. We find that the contributions involving the exchange of Kaluza-Klein modes of the physical scalar field a(kl)[plus-minus] depend logarithmically on the ultraviolet cutoff scale Lambda. We emphasize that all flavor-changing neutral current transitions suffer from this problem. Although the ultraviolet sensitivity weakens the lower bound on the inverse compactification radius 1/R that follows from [overline B]-->Xsgamma, the constraint remains stronger than any other available direct measurement. After performing a careful study of the potential impact of cutoff and higher-order effects, we find 1/R>650 GeV at 95% confidence level if errors are combined in quadrature. Our limit is at variance with the parameter region 1/R<~600 GeV preferred by dark matter constraints.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
